Performing Public Space online workshop | Public Space Discourse & Positioning | Online
01 Mar 2024 17:00 - 20:00
Programme

Facilitator: David Limaverde (PPS tutor)

March 1 & 15 2024, 17.00-20.00h CET, online

Content of the workshop

In this two-day online workshop, you will explore what is and what could be “Public Space” in the contexts of academia, artistic research, and more specifically, in the context of the MA programme Performing Public Space (PPS)

Day 1 of the workshop will focus on the diverse genealogies of thought and theory that conceptualize Public Space as a category of research. You will also learn how Public Space has been used in the realm of artistic research, as well as how artists generate knowledge from and about it.

On Day 2, following individual artistic experiments realized by participants, you will have the chance to discuss the application of Public Space discourse in performative practices. The aim of the discussion is to generate a debate on how to artistically use this category of research, and how to position yourself in relation to it.

How to apply

Send an e-mail to faa-publicspace@fontys.nl, by February 18, 2024 including:
- short bio (150-200 words)
- motivation, including info about your work as an artist and its connection to public space (300-400 words)
- link to website or online portfolio if available

Applicants will receive confirmation on their participation by February 26, 2024.

IDEAS: inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, social safety

Students and employees of Fontys Academy of the Arts have a fundamental right to feel safe. Everyone has the right to be treated with respect and dignity. When a student or employee feels that there is unacceptable behaviour (bullying, sexually transgressive behaviour, discrimination, intimidation, racism, aggression or violence), this must be responded to appropriately. In short, they feel seen and heard according to their wishes. Here is an overview of various websites and internal portals with information about support options when confronted with unacceptable behaviour. The topic of “social safety” receives ample structural attention.

You can always mail to team IDEAS; they will contact you as soon as possible!
